COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, keg & bottle; Regular.

Rapture is our full bodied, heavenly hoppy red beer. 5 types of malt and 6 types of hops make for a truly elating experience. Uplifting aromas of grapefruit and pine, combine with a pithy orange and pronounced citrus flavour which is balanced against a deeply rich and malty body. A satisfyingly dry and crisp finish offers your taste buds redemption. Our red ale will take you to heaven and back…

Scopey (12231) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2011
Cask at CP&K. It pours clear amber, with a large foamy beige head and soft carbonation. The nose is wood, smoke, orange, nut and some caramel sweetness. The taste is roasted malt, brown bread, wood, smoke, burnt malt, bitter chocolate, nut and astringency, with a long bitter-woody finish. A tasty hoppy red ale.

thewolf (12023) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2012
Bottle, bought @ Mybrewerytap.
Pours fairly muddy amber with a lovely, staying, cream-coloured, cremy head. Aroma has lovely spiciness, pine, grapefruit, light ashy toasted caramel, some resin and light sweetness. Medium carbonation, good dry and fairly light mouthfeel. Flavour has dusty caramel malts, some resin, a tad yeasty, some rhubarb, citrus. Fairly bitter finish with some grainy malts. Certainly not Magic Rock’s best effort, but still good.

Small glass served from tap at Schouskjelleren. Reddish-orange coloured body. Lasting layer, totally blanketing the glass. Aroma of apricot and pine. Fresh malt-fruity taste including notes of grapefruits, orange, resin with mid-sweet malts benaeth. Rounded bitter ending. Fine session qualities (happy drinking in friendly company with Hege and OleR in Oslo during a Saturday afternoon, 15.09.2012).

rosenbergh (10202) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2014
Draught at the O'Connell's, Tampere, Finland. Clear dark red amber colour with a creamy and foamy off-white head. The aroma is mild with hops, mild bitterness, dry wood and nutty malt. The flavour is much stronger with piney and mild grapefruity hops, mild bitterness, nutty and woody dryness, malt and some paper. Served ice cold. Very low carbonation. I was expecting a bit more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
